Presidents Day 2021

President Trevor Ireland and his Vice President held their Presidents Day competitions on Sunday the 29th of August. On a chilly, breezy but dry day it was pleasing to see a full field of players- 176 in total. The gentlemen were playing for the Presidents trophy whilst the ladies competed for the Vice president's trophy.

Both competitions had the same format- playing pairs better ball Stableford.

The players enjoyed a break at the halfway house to sample the hospitality of the Presidents.

The presentation of prizes to the winners took place in a pleasantly crowded clubhouse.

A special mention must be made for the winners of the gentlemen’s Stuart Smith and his

13 years old grandson Blake with an outstanding total of 50 points.

Junior Captain in unstoppable form

Belton Park Golf Club Junior Captain Emily Horsted completed a memorable two weeks with victory in the Junior Club Championship. She followed up her success in winning the Ladies Championship earlier in the month with another win in the prestigious Ian Ward Trophy competition on 25th August before retaining her title in the Junior championship the next day. 

Emily won the Ian Ward Trophy with an excellent score of 42 points with Harry Chambers finishing second on 37 points. Special mention to Harry who was playing in his first full competition and to finish second was a great achievement. 

The club championship was again a very close contest with Emily narrowly beating sister Ellie by two shots. The nett championship was even closer with just one shot separating the top three juniors. The eventual winner was Blake Smith who shot a nett 72 in very difficult conditions.

Congratulations to Emily and Blake on their success and both are pictured below with their respective trophies.

Seniors vs Nottinghamshire

On Tuesday, August 24th, the Belton Park Seniors were at home again for their biennial friendly match versus the Seniors from The Nottinghamshire.

Although the weather was dry again, the sun never made an appearance, making it a cool breezy day. The match was played on the Ancaster course (holes 19-27, and 1-9).

Unfortunately, Nottinghamshires' Captain David Pearson had to play on his own due to being a player short, which made it a tough match for the visiting team in the first game. With seven wins and one match halved, this was another excellent performance from the Belton team, the result was a Belton Park win by 7 ½ to ½.

Aveling Barford Hospital Cup

On Sunday, August 22nd, 25 teams of four players played in the Aveling Barford Hospital Cup open competition at Belton Park Golf Club. The format was Gents four ball better ball, two Stableford scores to count on each hole, and the teams played the Brownlow course [1 to 18]. This is a very popular competition and teams came from all over Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Cambridgeshire to compete, with some from as far afield as Salisbury!

The Aveling Barford is one of the oldest trophies played for at Belton Park. It was organized by local engineering company Aveling Barford in 1937. The magnificent trophy was originally called the Aveling Barford Hospital Challenge Trophy and was given to Grantham Hospital, in order that a golf charity could be organized each year to raise funds for the hospital. The competition has been organized by Belton Park Golf Club since the 1980s and the format is now an 18-hole AM AM.

The conditions on the day were ideal for some excellent golf despite the forecast of thunderstorms and rain, which never materialized! All the competitors praised the superb condition of the course.

The winning team of Darren Nicholson, Paul Burrell, Ian Mason, and Andy Stones from the local club, Sudbrook Moor, scored a magnificent 91 points, including a hole-in-one by Ian Mason on hole 6!  For the full results, see the Belton Park website.

Belton Park Golf Club will be donating £100 to the NHS from the proceeds of the competition.

The winning team from Sudbrook Moor is pictured here with the trophy.

Midland Golf Team Call up

Belton Park 1st team player, Jack Diment has been asked to represent the Midland Golf team in their annual fixture against the Southwest 

Given the number of clubs in the Midland region, this is a tremendous accolade for Jack, and we wish him every success. 

Jack is the first player from Belton Park to be selected for the Midlands team for several decades. He continues to be a great ambassador for Belton Park Golf Club, and this is just a reward for all the dedication he gives to his game.

(Well done Jack who is pictured)
